RBI keeps repo rate unchanged at 4.0%, retains accommodative stance
Mumbai, April 7, 2021
To support a faster economic recovery amid the surge in Covid-19 cases, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) today retained its key short-term lending rates along with the growth-oriented accommodative stance in its first monetary policy review of FY22.
Accordingly, the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) of the central bank voted to maintain the repo rate, or short-term lending rate, for commercial banks, at 4 per cent.
Likewise, the reverse repo rate was kept unchanged at 3.35 per cent, and the marginal standing facility (MSF) rate and the bank rate at 4.25 per cent.
It was widely expected that MPC would hold rates and the accommodative stance.
